I've got some bad news about WrestleMania guys. On the WrestleMania.com website, they have McMahon and Hogan listed at the top as the main event. Also, they are both on the front cover of the RAW magazine preview of WrestleMania.

So it looks as if Hogan v. McMahon will be the main event of WrestleMania. And we thought Stephanie "owning" ECW was bad. Now Vince is pushing himself in the main event of Wrestle-fucking-Mania. *sigh*



You thought watching Thunder was bad? Raw is like watching Thunder in re-runs.

What was listed as the top match last year?

Hogan/Rock

What match ended the night?

Jericho/HHH

Who was featured in all the promotional material for Vengeance December 2001?

HHH

Who didn't appear at the event?

HHH

The advertising and promotions stuff can be really decieving. Settle down.

If Hogan/McMahon is the main event, that virtually eliminates the possibility of the Mania IX finish reoccurring. So, I hope this is the main event.



I'll pay $49.95 for the Execute Bin Laden PPV. And I'll buy one of the lottery tickets at 10 bucks a pop to be the executioner.

Also, that means that the crowd won't be burnt out for matches like Rock/Austin and Booker/HHH. In fact, they're much more likely to be tired for the Hogan swansong.

Jumping to conclusions, personified in a post.

Also, don't insult the word "news". Reserve it for when something factual comes along.

I've always thought it better pacing when the cartoon-y story-driven gimmick matches come at the end of a PPV card. By that time, my brain is tired and I want something I don't have to pay a lot of attention to.

So if Hogan-Vince ends my WM night, I'm all for it.

If McMahon/Hogan is last, I can leave Safeco early and beat traffic. I am ALL about that.

Apparently, quite a few people had the same idea during HHH-Jericho last year in Toronto.

What happened at WM18 was the following:

Rock made his big speech to Hogan about "Do you want to headline WM one last time", which Hogan - glory hogging, no surprise - was more than happy to agree to, on-air.

The posters went out. The biggest stars in the business, no questions asked, were Hogan and Rock, they were the ones Vince built the PPV promos around to spike to buyrate. And oh boy, did it work.

In the meantime, we had two small problems: Austin, the guy who pretty much single-handedly revived Vince's company in the mid-to-late 90s was shunted down the card into an irrelevant match with Scott Hall. Until shortly before WM actually went on the air, Austin was slated to lose that match.

The other problem was that HHH had been given the superman comeback push from hell, but had utterly failed to do anything to back it up with in-ring performances. On his first night back on TV, HHH entered the ring to make an announcement, punked out Angle who rushed in, and easily pedigreed him. Then he proclaimed that he was entering the Royal Rumble... which he won after posing and eliminating Angle. From then on it was obvious that he'd go over whoever held the title at WM. Jericho was made to look ridiculous and unthreatening, essentially taking being the lackey for Stephanie and her dog in storylines. With Austin and Rock dealing with the NWO for supposed money feuds, face HHH would go over Jericho for the title at WM. Months and months of pushing him as a face and building him up as unstoppable could have only one logical conclusion.

Hogan went into WM as a heel; it wasn't immediately obvious that the crowd would turn on Rocky. The tried-and-tested method was to send the crowd happy with a face win. Coupled with the aforementioned superman push for HHH, and the supposed backstage pull he had, there was only one solution that would avoid upstaging their biggest face, especially as the Rock was only there for a little while: certainly not long enough to push him as their top face, coupled with a win over the legend that was Hogan. The only other face threat to HHH's run was pushed down the card, and only Austin's complaints on the eve of WM prevented him from losing to Hall.

With Hogan slated to beat Vince at this year's WM, the company thinks they've learned their lesson: Hogan won't be booed, and his win will send the fans home happy. Nobody knows what will happen with Lesnar and his opponent (whoever it will be), and HHH is an uncertain proposition right now, as his run over the last months has squashed and de-heated most faces on Raw, apart from Booker T. Austin-Rock is a rewarmed feud without real build-up, and the fans know that. There is no issue, no storyline, nothing. Austin hasn't wrestled properly in months, and he's 39 years old - the Rock's only recent outing was a dreadful display against Hogan. Their only sure-fire crowd pleaser is Hogan-Vince, which they've downscaled wrestling expectations for, billing it as a 'fight', i.e. a brawl with carefully selected spots and blading, probably overbooked. Yet, it's their best shot for sending the fans home happy.

You go right ahead. Hell, why even go? That way you can avoid the traffic all you want.

You have a ticket to Wrestlemania. WRESTLEMANIA! Don't buy the ticket and then bitch about it. If I were you, there'd be no way I'd miss what could be Hogan's last match.

VanillaSky is right... you've got tickets to Wrestlemania and you're going to leave before what might be the only match with ANY heat???

Now I hate that guy too!

Yea, I don't know, this just strikes me as weird. If I could be at Mania, I would even take the upper upper deck and watch Stevie Richards vs. Spike Dudley 8 times and still not complain. I mean, its WRESTLEMANIA. Under what friggin circumstances would anybody LEAVE WRESTLEMANIA EARLY?? Cause they don't like the match order? Maybe this is why there's so much Wienerboard negativity. We can't even accept WRESTLEMANIA before it's even happened.

I went to the WM site just to check this out and I was reminded, Rock/Austin isn't official yet. Presuming they don't scrap Rock/Austin, I'm sure they will put that in the top spot once it's official.

I like Kane and not hHh or Goldberg but no I really don't want to see a Triple Threat Title match. To me it seems that Kane chokeslaming Goldberg was just to give Kane a small feud tell Undertaker returns.
